B.S. in Economics, International Studies and French

I declared an Econ major after I took the Intro to Micro course and discovered a newfound academic passion. The SMU department of economics is full of professors who are not only incredibly knowledgeable on the subjects they teach, but who are supportive, understanding, and always ready to help any student that wants to learn. If anyone is hesitant or curious about Economics I highly recommend taking an Intro course!

The SMU Economics Department gave me the opportunity to challenge myself and prepared me very well for life after college.

The real world experience and perspectives that they brought into the classroom made the lessons much more meaningful and helped to instill the importance of what we were learning.

As I reflect on my time at SMU over the past four years, I cannot help but feel so grateful and appreciative for all of the professors and faculty I have come in contact with, especially in the Economics Department. I am so thankful for the way that my professors made the effort to get to know me personally and began to actually care about my wellbeing not just as a student, but as a person. They were always so willing to offer up their time to help me in any way they possibly could, and I owe a large part of my success in college to them.

B.S. in Economics with Finance Applications

During my four years at SMU, I would really like to thank the Department of Economics for providing me with a broad range of classes and projects. Although I have not yet started my job and not sure what aspects of my education I will utilize in my day to day tasks, I was able to apply much of what I learned from classes when job hunting. The wide variety of topics I covered during my time with the department has provided me with the knowledge to have intelligent conversations with professionals of many backgrounds, building stronger connection to individuals, which helps tremendously when interviewing and networking. Also, being exposed to many topics has allowed me to narrow down a career path that matches my strengths and interests.
